Scot – you will enjoy using the zoom lens. You can get close without having to spook the birds. There are instructions for posting photos in the Sticky thread titled “Posting Tips for The New Bluebird Nut Cafe.” I do crop the photos about 60% prior to posting. It is not that hard to do. I look forward to seeing your work.
Bob- The training process is fun to watch if you get the opportunity. The little ones mimic the parent but then sit and wait with an open beak to be fed.
